    I've tried getting some answers to this from Apple support forums and my local mac forum but didn't get much info...

    I've removed some important language files while using monolingual
    (namely -English (American) -English (British) not realizing these are subset and required).
    I should've read the FAQ first... now some programs are appearing in weird character formats.

    Can I restore these language files with my Time Machine back ups?
    Which folder would I need to replace back with previous file?

    Since I did this only late last night, I should be able to just replace a certain system file folder, without causing much headache, I'm hoping!

    Would be even simpler to jut reinstall OS X (won't delete any data) than hunt for those files. Takes 45mins and then you should be fine
